Syrian regime arrested a civilian in Ghariba village in Deir Ez-Zour suburbs on November 10

A man from Ghariba village which is administratively a part of al Ashara city in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, named as Abdul Jabbar Muhsen al Darwish, was arrested by Syrian regime forces personnel during a raid on his home in the village on November 10, 2020, and taken to an undisclosed location.
The arrest was conducted without any legal arrest warrant being issued by a court, with no member of Abdul Jabbar’s family being informed of his arrest or whereabouts, and with his phone being confiscated, preventing him from contacting his family or a lawyer. SNHR fears that he will be subjected to torture and ultimately classified as forcibly ‘disappeared’, like approximately 85 percent of all detained persons.
SNHR can confirm that at least 130,689 Syrian citizens are still detained or forcibly disappeared in the regime’s detention centers, constituting a grave threat to the detainees’ wellbeing, given the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
